IAEA - SSG-25

Periodic Safety Review for Nuclear Power Plants

active, Most Current
Organization: IAEA
Publication Date: 1 January 2013
Status: active
scope:

This Safety Guide deals with PSR for an operating nuclear power plant. PSR is a comprehensive safety review of all important aspects of safety, carried out at regular intervals, typically every ten years. In addition, a PSR may be used in support of the decision making process for license renewal or long term operation, or for restart of a nuclear power plant following a prolonged shutdown.

The review process described in this Safety Guide is valid for nuclear power plants of any age and may have a wider applicability, for example to research reactors and radioactive waste management facilities, by means of a graded approach. However, PSR may not be an appropriate means for identifying safety issues in the decommissioning phase, although the documentation resulting from the PSR of an operating nuclear power plant will be an important input when planning decommissioning.
